CFdesign CFdesign v8.0 is featured in a Software Review in the Auguest issue of the International Journal of Fluid Power. The article reviews the process for using the software in pump development and provides details on technical capabilities unique to CFdesign.
Throughout the history of pump design, there has always been a significant effort dedicated to improving pump efficiency, increasing duty cycle, and broadening operating range. Engineers have been faced with the task of creating multiple castings for housings, impellers, and other machine components only to find that they could be made better after-the-fact. More prototypes were made until the budget of the project required a final prototype to go into production. From the beginning, CFdesign was developed to exist as a tool on the desktop of engineers tasked with the creation of new pump designs.
